So I am completely ecstatic about Sam Claflin being officially cast as Finnick :)
As opposed to several anon haters, I am not upset about Claflin getting the role, and I’m completely fine with Grant not being Finnick. Grant’s filmed two movies over the past couple of months and he’ll be making it big some other way. Sam Claflin was my absolute second choice for Finnick :) He’s had previous acting experience in two major films, is about the right age, and looks the part.
I haven’t been using this blog recently because I knew that Sam Claflin was going to be officially cast eventually - the rumours about Jena Malone and Seymour Hoffman were released weeks before they were official as well. I also had a tonne of work to do at school so I’ve had to cut back on my tumblr time.
I’m no longer going to be using this blog, because I’d rather leave it here to remember what it once was than change it into a Grant Gustin fan blog or a THG news blog (the latter I definitely don’t have time for).
But if you’d like to keep following me, here’s the link to my tumblr:
Bye guys, and I hope you all enjoy the rest of the THG movies :)

Hacking at his appearance
like the way people complained about Josh Hutcherson being too short and having brown hair
Or Jennifer Lawrence being too tall and fat and not starved enough and blonde.
Sam Claflin (and any other actor) can lose weight, gain muscle, shave, change their hairstyle and hair colour.
It’s in the acting guys, if he can pull off sexy Finnick and depressed Finnick, then he’s going to be great.

is there something wrong with people wanting to know if he’s gay?
blood-on-your-wrists said: I dont have anything against Sam Clafin but.. I mean Grant IS Finnick in the first moment I read the character I thought in Grant and I want so bad that he plays Finn
I know how you feel :3
We can all always have Grant as Finnick in our hearts

Anonymous said: In this interview with Grant, they're talking about him being cast as Finnick possibly, and the interviewer mentions your tumblr at 1:58 I'm pretty dang sure!
yes haha I’ve seen it, I started crying and full-on fangirled when I heard them talking about it :D

He was Philip, the Christian missionary who falls in love with Serena the mermaid (who’s played by Astrid Berghes-Frisbey)
I don’t like Sam. I mean, he’s an amazing actor, but Grant… Grant is Finnick, and i want him for Finnick.
I really dig the idea of Grant Gustin as Finnick! At first I didn’t, but the I realized he looks like a drawing of Finnick I made. I don’t really like the idea of Sam Caflin as Finnick because he oddly reminds me of a granny, and in my mind, Finnick is really hot, so the idea of him as Sam disturbs me… a lot. (although i respect your opinion of him)
I just really want Grant as Finnick, he is almost exactly what I had imagined. Is there any official word from Lionsgate yet?
and here I thought we were the mature ones.
Please stop with the hate, you’re almost as bad as the people pushing for Garrett Hedlund as Finnick.
Okay some points of reassurance.
1. There’s no official word from Lionsgate, so if you don’t like Sam Claflin there’s a chance someone else might be given the role.
2. Which means he hasn’t accepted the role yet.
3. No matter what Lionsgate decides, their choices for most of the other roles were perfect, so if Sam Claflin is chosen as Finnick, he was chosen for a reason.
I’m also assuming that the people hacking at Sam’s appearance haven’t seen any of the movies that he’s been in, so I strongly suggest you go watch Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and Snow White and the Huntsmen. They’re both also really good movies so watch them anyway :)
I know that we really want Grant as Finnick, and that’s completely fine, he can still be Finnick in our minds and when we read the books. But there’s a chance someone else can be cast, and eventually we’ll have to get over it. And if he does get cast, then what a pleasant surprise that’ll be :)
CrackShip: The Hunger Games. Finnick Odair&Katniss Everdeen. Like if you are gonna take it.
the way it really should be (Grant Gustin as Finnick Odair)
